    The X-ray lead is so pure I doubt you will need to flux it, assuming it doesn't have sheetrock stuck to the back. The WW will need a bit of fluxing, but the grease on them does a bit of it all by itself. The worst ever is roofing sheet lead, LOTSA...

    I don't really keep an inventory but all alloys are in different ingot form, so I can tell with a quick look how much of everything I have. Main alloys are pure(triangular ingots), WW(Lyman ingots), Lino(smaller Castboolit ingots) and ready to use...

    In machining, chatter is the vibration that feeds on itself as the tool moves across the part. What you have appears to be a broach cut barrel using a dull or damaged broach. The damage areas are from the base metal tearing due to the dull or...

    There is no direct correlation. Low SD and ES don't become a factor until the yardage gets long for that cartridge and target size small. A simple example is 308 in match rifles. At 200 &300 yards group size is my primary concern since poor...

    Finally got around to shooting both of the AR's and a AR15. Only thing done to them was cleaned the barrels. All three functioned 100%. Five shot groups with the 308 were around 1" to 1 1/4" with M852 match ammo. The AR15 had a red dot one it. ...
